.m. eastern. a number of senators have been meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice in the wake of her comments following the attack on the benghazi consulate. just wrapping up is a brief news conference and statement with senators. here is a look. >> i had a very candid ambassador rice embassador ric and the deputy director of the cia. [inaudible] she said if it was a spontaneous demonstration. it was not. there was telling evidence at that time. >> [inaudible] i am very disappointed in our intelligence community. i think they failed in many ways. i think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far-filled. at the end of the day, we are going to get to the bottom of this. we have to have a system that we trust. if you don't know what happened, just say you don't know what happened. you can say "i do not want to give that information." you can say the american people got bad information from president obama in the days after. the question is should they have been given the information at all? if you can d
that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that experience -- could havi annan led the group to see if they can re-establish something similar and this report of which has not been very much observed. i think we have ideas for iran. that will give really intrusive inspecti
that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and t
for u.n. ambassador then was a recess appointee. no way the president will nominate a secretary of state as a recess appointee. you cannot with credible lead diplomacy over the world. we'll have a debate tomorrow. there is a debate in the general assembly of the united nations on palestinian statehood. it is symbolic but now france is going along with the rest of the general assembly, the united states and israel and a few others will probably stand alone against this gesture considered a very important move by the sort of weakened fatah branch of the palestinians after what happened with gaza and hamas and susan rice has to represent the united states. and there's got to be a lot of weakening of her position. >> wow, a lot going on. obviously the fiscal cliff as well. the president is sitting down with a dozen chief executeties today to talk about this. some of them were prominent supporters of mitt romney. and then the president is going to try and sell his budget plan going to a toy factory. speaking of -- >> that's where i'd go. >> speaking of the budget, coming up, former treasurer
'll have to stay tuned for john kerry. and also, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who got into some trouble over libya and with what happened with libya. that's also in question. those are the two, top candidates. but we have to wait and see how the issues play out. >> in the meantime, the libya issue has been overhanging this election. allegations of a, quote, massive cover-up, by senator john mccain, about this administration's real refusal to put to rest this issue, before voting day. >> they didn't want to talk about it. everybody tried to pin them down on that. they did not want to talk about it. i think a lot of those questions will probably get cleared up with an investigation that's now going on. and there will probably be hearings, as well. >> and iran's huge. what we're going to do to that country and how we're going to handle that ongoing threat. >> iran is huge. you heard the israelis say there's only a small amount of time, maybe several months, before they could strike iran. i think president obama, what you see now, is president obama doing everything he can to avoid war there. >>
talked about how the support of the latino community gave to president obama was really a un precedented. we would have to go back to 1996 to see that kind of strong support for one party. if we think back to 1996, what was going on was prop 187 in california, which so alienated latinos and drove them to the democratic party. president clinton was against prop 187. when latinos organized and participated in the process, they supported the democratic candidate. i think that there is -- unless the republican party comprehensively looks at what the latino community -- disavows such positions as the arizona immigration law or alabama, laws supporting things -- issues such as self-deportation -- self-deportation is a great example of the volumes and principles -- of the american values and principles we were talking about. the idea that we would make the life of an individual and family so miserable that the person would, on his or her own, decide to remove themselves from the country where they are at, where they have found refuge. that is not american values. that is heartless and cruel. th
mccain is softening his attacks on u.n. ambassador susan rice after vowing to block her potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says that she's not to blame, arguing she relied on the talking points from the intelligence community. although mccain had threatened a senate filibuster earlier this month, he's now open to meeting directly with miss rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about it? >> sure. she can -- i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> the white house says no decisions have been made as far as cabinet selections for the president's second term. and john heilemann, part of what you wrote about th
. according to the onion, it's not will cain either, it's kim jong-un. there he is, alongside channing tatum. onion says the 29-year-old north korean supreme leader gets the nod with his devastatingly handsome looks, boyish charm, round cheeks plus, the onion says, they have a cuddly side. >> now we're quoting "the onion." >>> former cia director david petraeus is testifying right now behind closed doors. house committee wants to know everything he knows about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. at the same time he is investigating, the cia is launch an investigation into the conduct that forced him to resign last week. dana bash is in washington for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, soledad. david petraeus has been behind closed doors for about an hour now, or so we're told. we never actual ly saw him go i. i just want to give you a sense of the geography down here. lock at this staircase here. this is the staircase that the then cia director david petraeus came down in the open when he was here in september to brief the members of the house intellig
to the war, but he never denies that he voted to une give callly thank the president for the war effort in iraq. >> moderator: ms. ericson? ericson: the f-35s are designed to carry targeted, smart nuclear bombs. the issue isn't six minutes of noise a day, the issue is nuclear proliferation. now, when i was a child in the early 1960s, vermont was the garden of eden. since bernie sanders came in, vermont's gone to hell. and we've got to stop this hell that he's putting us through. we've got to stop the f-35. we've got to stop nuclear proliferation. sure, they can have it down in south carolina, but we can at least just say no to it here in vermont. now, there are other serious problems with the f-35. we have a problem with solar flares. nasa says the solar flares are going to continue for another year. they disrupt communication, and because solar flares disrupt communication, we can end up with one of these nuclear bombs detonating in the burlington, vermont. .. the military machine would be called into question by, we, the people, saying this is what i want to get done or not get done,
